Warnings have been issued to shoppers at a Leeds supermarket after a string of bag thefts from trolleys.

Police said Morrison’s in Morley had seen six incidents in the last two months.

In the most recent incident a bag containing £2,600 in cash was stolen along with a bank card, house keys and driving licence.

Another victim lost a purse containing cards and a PIN number that was written on the inside.

The Leeds outer south neighbourhood policing team said: “Please may we remind shoppers to be vigilant, especially in the run up to Christmas and with busying crowds. People are often in a rush and focussed on buying presents more than being aware of what’s going on around them.”

The disgraced former celebrity publicist, Max Clifford, has reportedly died in hospital aged 74 after collapsing in prison.
